Judge rips Conor McGregor for 'disrespect to the court'

The UFC fighter appeared at Blanchardstown District Court yesterday after he was compelled to by Judge Miriam Walsh. At a previous hearing Judge Walsh said that if any defendant wanted to make an argument, that person must attend court themselves or send a legal representative.

'It may sound stupid but I have to ask - please don't tell me that you earned 110 million in one day'.

The athlete claimed to the court that he had tried unsuccessfully to pay the fine.

The fighter is accused of speeding on the Naas Road in Dublin on March 31.

The judge asked if he had heard the evidence of the speed he was accused of doing and he replied: "I can't do not forget to be honest but I tried my best to pay it". McGregor said "Come and get me!".

Last week was the second time the case failed to go ahead after it was put back earlier this month when the court was told he was in Los Angeles. McGregor had already pissed the judge off by not showing up on time, but was eventually dragged into court when he was threatened with arrest, reports the Mirror.

When Mr Kenny again invited the judge to deal with the case in Mr McGregor's absence on the basis that he was pleading guilty, the judge said: 'Mr McGregor will have to be here. "This is absolute disrespect to the court", said Judge Walsh, according to the Irish Independent.

If McGregor is concerned, he didn't show it during or after his brief appearance in court. Or some people who are related to some very, very heavy people that could pose a serious threat to his safety and maybe even his life - and I don't say that lightly. He pled guilty to the crime and paid the ticket in full, but that doesn't make this video any less hilarious.
